Advancing Markets. Enriching Lives.
To become the industry leading market-making firm by creating an environment where innovative and collaborative professionals thrive.
I have been working at Allston Trading full-time (More than 5 years)
The CEO has the best interest of the employees in mind. He has an open door policy and is always willing to listen to the employees concern, no matter how big or small. He is very fair and honest, which trickles down to the management team. Also, the benefits at Allston are incredible. Free breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages are included. We have chair massages every Wednesday. And best of all, we have a very flexible work environment. We have an unlimited vacation policy, which gives the employees the freedom of a work/life balance. Also nice, is that we have quarterly bonuses and a great compensation plan. By far, the best perk is the people I work with. The CEO has worked hard to create a nice work environment for everyone. This is the best place I have worked, and I have been in the industry for more than 15 years.
Really, the only con of working here is the age of the building. Our floor has problems with heating/cooling. There are problems with plumbing, etc.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Allston Trading (Ithaca, NY) in September 2016.
No Resume, and directly put interview question. Mainly Java. First come to me to introduce the company, then just ask some basic question in Java like STL, String, Hash table. Then ask Deadlock for me. Finally, ask me to ask him some question. The total process of interview is 45min.
